Preferred Solution: Computer freezing up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently built my first PC three days ago...
Specs:
i7 bloomfield 960 processor
4x4 vengeance ram
crosair hx850 PSU
evga x58 ftw3 mobo
hd 6870 radeon graphics xfx

When I first installed windows it started to work just fine but I soon noticed that it would randomly freeze every 15-30 minutes of use, but not on a particular program or anything. I assumed it was drivers so I installed the latest drivers for my GPU and MOBO and keyboard. It seemed fine again until it started crashing again. I ran a GPU burn test and a CPU burn test it passed both... (I tried runing memtest86+ but it froze at like 12%) Then I tried fixing the registry so I downloaded ccleaner and fixed the registry problems. Freezes continued. I finally decided to re install windows so I did and the problems still continued. I am at a loss of what to do and can't think of anything else.

any advice would be appreciated if not I will bring to a repair shop and have them sort it out.

A:Newly built computer random freezing and freezing on starting windows

Hello Skytri and welcome to Seven Forums. My usual disclaimer: I'm not at expert at anything.

I'm wondering if there isn't a RAM problem. Perhaps one of the sticks wasn't seated properly, etc. You could open Resource Monitor > Memory tab and make sure all RAM is being recognized. Make sure Installed = 16384MB and the Available + Cached + Hardware Reserved is the same amount. (You are using 16GB total, correct?)

Resource Monitor

If Memtest freezes you could try a quick check for a bad RAM module. Install one stick in Slot # 1 (or whichever slot the mobo manual says to use.) Run the computer to test for freezes. Test each of the remaining sticks one at a time. If all 4 sticks work you might want to go through these troubleshooting guides. They are time consuming but many people have been able to isolate their computer problems.

Hello,

I'm going to post two different scenarios that happens when my computer needs a hard restart
My computer freezes completely (literally no movement on the screen or anything, it's not slow it's frozen). And an extremely loud buzzing sound comes out of my headphones or speakers.The same thing as above except without the loud buzzing noise.

I saw that this happened to someone else who had both the speakers and the headphones plugged in at the same time. However, scenario #2 just happened to me 10 minutes ago even though I only had my headphones plugged in.

I built this computer six months ago and it's the first computer I've ever built. I assume it's a driver issue but I can't really pinpoint the problem since no BSOD appears on the screen and I have no higher computer knowledge.

I'm attaching the zip file required.

Thanks,

A:Random Computer Freezing - Need to hard restart after freezing No BSOD

Wow, this sounds like the same thing that happened to a friend of mine when his hard drive was failing. Replaced the drive and the freezes went away. Even the buzzing noise.

Also you may need to look at what drivers you may have just install/updated.

Hoping you don't have any failing hardware "Motherboard, video card, etc". Those are expensive

Hello, I'm having an issue with my computer.

My computer has started to restart/freeze up on me. The thing is, it has graphical issues once it freezes/tries to reboot. I get all these lines through the screen, graphical glitches when trying to go through the BIOS, etc. The computer isn't too slow, it isn't acting strange, the only thing that is wrong is the obvious freezing/restarting with graphical lines and glitches once it freezes.

My video card has been going out for a long time(I share a computer with a few people and they seem to think the video card is ok, but I have always seen small glitches in graphics here and there), so I am thinking maybe this might be a problem, given the graphical glitches, the horizontal lines going through the screen once it freezes.

When it hits the BIOS, it sometimes shows these same lines with the screen going mostly black.

System specs are:

CPU - Core 2 Duo, speed I don't remember.

Video Card - Geforce 7900 GT 512mb

Ram - 2GB DDR2

Motherboard - Asus, P5N-E SLI

I got this computer a few years back and I am not one to keep updated with specs or talk about them often, so I have forgotten the speed of the CPU and I do not know if I am missing information for you guys.

Solutions I have tried:

Overheating - I used air to filter out all dust/dirt that might be there to harm the computer, I have plenty of fans in there, etc.

Any and all help will be appreciated, Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Computer Freezing/freezing/graphical glitchs

If you're getting graphical 'glitches' while in bios, that's usually a good sign that your graphics card is having issues - however, I have seen this happen with faulty ram. I'd recommend reseating the cards (ensure your computer is off and unplugged whilst doing so) and see if that helps

A:Computer Freezing; Slowing Down. But mostly freezing. I have my HiJackThis! Log File.

I don't see anything in your log or your description of your problem to come to the conclusion that your problem is malware related. When there is malware present there will always be other internet related symptoms like popups or a browser hijack etc...

I will advise you to uninstall Microsoft Anti-Spyware as the version you have is very old and no longer supported. It in now called Windows Defender.

Here are some routine maintenance practices that you should do on a regular basis to keep your machine running efficiently. Go through this now and see if it helps:

Disk Cleanup:

http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_cleanup_utility.htm

Defrag your HD:

http://artsweb.bham.ac.uk/artsit/Info/Guides/GoodPractice/defrag-win2kxp.htm

Run chkdsk:

To use Chkdsk, click Start and My Computer. Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and click Properties. Select the Tools tab and click Check Now. Check both boxes. Click Start. You'll get a message that the computer must be rebooted to run a complete check. Click Yes and reboot. Chkdsk will take awhile, so run it when you don't need to use the computer for something else.

Remove unnecessary startups

This should be done through the System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig.
Click OK or hit the Enter key.

Click on the "Startup" tab and remove the check by the items that you have determined are unnecessary. Click "Apply" then "Close"

I don't know what else to say other than my computer has been freezing and firefox has been freezing lately. I called the manufacturer and he said to restore windows to factory settings, so I did that. Things were great for a week or so, but recently my computer has begun freezing again. It happens pretty frequently. Firefox will also freeze when trying to get it to do very little work, like loading two tabs simultaneously, e.g. My AVS found a suspicious file recently and quarantined it, but still, the freezing has continued. Please advise.

And I do not think that I have a Boot CD

Had the day from hell with my computer, antivirus stopped working and my computer got infected. On safe mode with networking, I ran malwarebyte a couple times, cleaned most all of it out. When rebooting to windows, computer became super slow, like 5 minutes to open a window, etc. I had to force reboot a few times. But then I started getting a screen that demanded a reboot disk. Only one I have is. a windows vista disc. I had windows 7. It won't let me even get that blue startup screen where I can push f keys.
Can anyone give me some advice, or do I need to just get a new hard drive.

Welcme,
The problem isn't the hard drive, it's that you are still infected.

I have a HP Pavillion dv9417ca Notebook PC with AMD Turion 64X2 Mobile Technology Tl-56, 2.0G Ram, NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 with Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP2.

The computer when running slowly makes a ton of noise starting up and running and tends to use more processing. The computer sometimes makes weird noises that aren't normal windows sounds and come from error's. Like intense beeping noises ocassionally. Firefox especially is insanely slow and the longer I run it the more processing power it uses up along with the plugins.exe. Sometimes it will uses so much that it completely freezes my computer. Lately I've also been having trouble starting the computer where it won't even load windows.

I've ran Ccleaner daily and Malwarebytes weekly and find nothing and the problem has been getting progressively worse. I have Avast which updates daily.

first off, here are my specsAMD Athlon 64 X2 5200M2N-e Asus motherboard2 gigs (1gig x2) Corsair dual channel ramNvidia Geforce 7900 GS 256mb PCI-EWhen I first built my computer and loaded windows, it worked super fast.

I unistalled AVG cause there was a process running that is supposed to be a Trojan, and a program said AVG was running it. So, I deleted it, was prompted to restart, so I did. It took literally 10 minutes to shut down and restart. At worst, my old computer took 5 minutes. (P4 2.8, 1.5 gigs ram, ATI Radeon 9800). So, how do I fix this? I have a theory its Microsoft forcing people to upgrade by putting out crappy updates. I mean, for my card, the newest driver is dated the beginning of last year...They come out with a new one but its Vista only. Woo...idiots. So basically it started about 3 days ago, aprox. 4 days after this computer was built. I was playing Battlefield 1942, it froze. I tried 5 times, it froze in different spots at different times.

A:I Need Help...slow Computer, Freezing Games, On A Fast Computer...(possible Trojan)

The first thing which strikes me is that you have 2 anti-virus applications on your computer ( Zone Alarm security suite and AVG Free) Having two anti virus applications running on your PC can give conflicts so I suggest you uninstall one.For the antispyware applications do you have all real time protection enabled?..I first would try Microsoft online test and see what comes up. The freezing can also indicate faulty memory, there for run a Memtest to rule that out.

Recently(about 2 weeks ago), my computer started freezing. It happened 5 times already(one of them occurred as I was typing this post). I wasn't doing anything in particular, just using Firefox to browser the web.

3 of the freezings occurred while I was just browsing, 2 occurred while my computer was starting up. No sites in general either, out of the 3 times I froze, I was on different sites each time(all of them are "known safe ones" too like ign.com, wikipedia, etc).

After the latest freeze(during browsing), I restarted my computer only for my computer to freeze again after 3 seconds(screen stayed the same, it happened right after it showed me my memory test). Then I restarted my computer again and it froze before anything showed up(monitor did not detect anything so the monitor did not show anything).
Here's what I have done so far:

1. I used memtest86 and done 3 full tests, no errors on any tests.

2. Did anti-virus and anti-spyware scan on my computer(I used: Avast, Spybot, Adaware).

3. Checked Windows Event Viewer(unfortunately it didn't log anything).

Here's the last things I did to my computer before I noticed the freezings:
1. I downloaded and installed Secunia PSI.

2. I downloaded and installed the latest version of WinRAR and Quicktime player(recommendations from Secunia).

3. I also installed various security patches from microsoft update.

Besides that, nothing in particular.

My laptop is a Gateway 450 ROG and it has had this problem for the last week. It will run for roughly 40 minutes, and then (even when small programs are running) it will freeze up. My mouse wont move, no command will respond and i am forced to hold the power button and shut it off.
2nd Problem, occasionally when i turn on the computer it wont boot up. The screen will turn on and stop with a dash blinking in the top left corner, not proceeding to any boot up of any kind, and just recently while i shut it down from this sort of freezing up, little pictures of pixel hearts and dots started appearing until i shut it off. This problem has gone on since i bought this computer from my brother but the pictures havent until this last week .

Hello everyone - I am a new member of the forum and hope that someone reading this might be able to help me with a problem I have with my computer.

In recent weeks the computer screen keeps freezing with the cursor being replaced by the hour glass symbol. This usually happens after several hours' computer usage - but sometimes it occurs soon after the computer is turned on.

When this happens, I am unable to log off; the computer on/off button does not work when the screen freezes and I have to turn the computer off at the mains.

In order to be able to log back into my broadband internet connection I have to turn the computer and and off twice and then on again .

Sometimes when the computer screen image freezes a message box appears always saying "End programme" (i.e. "End programme - CiceroUIWndFrame" or "End programme - mixer").

My computer runs on the Windows XP operating system.

I changed from Internet Explorer browser 6 to 7 yesterday but the problem of the computer screen freezing persists.

Any helpful advice on this would be much appreciated.

How old is your computer? Have you ever reinstalled your OS?

What I usually recommend is if your computer is at least a couple of years old and have yet to do a clean install of your Operating System now is the time, especially when it starts acting up =)

Ok this is my first time on this site and i have little understanding of the computer but let me try to explain the problem as well as i can.

Ok most of my games are freezing up during gameplay such as Everquest freezes up for no reason or same for Guild Wars. I think its something wrong with my computer (but no sure the problem) or it might be something wrong with the graphic card. I can telll the difference between lag of a game and the game just freezing up for no apparent reason.

If you need me to say what kind of computer i have or what graphic card i currently have, please say so.

If there is a program that i need to download to help fix this problem, i trust you guys seeing as you know more than i do.

Can you guys please help me out?

Athlon Xp 1800+ stock hsf
Radeon 9500
Maxtor 15 GB Drive
LG 4x2x24x Burner
----------------------------------

Well, to keep it short, my computer randomly freezes to the point where I can not do anything. sometimes this happens during boot up, sometimes after 10 minutes of usage, sometimes just looking through the bios.

here are some things that I have done since it was working properly:

-uninstalled zone alarm
-downloaded some xp updates
-downloaded updated mobo drivers
-upped cpu multiplyer to 12x
-reset mobo multiplyer to 11.5x
-flashed bios with 1003 (it froze before and after i did this)
-installed new HD
-removed the HD
-swore at my computer a lot

it seems like it is an overheating problem but i checked my cpu temp at idle and its only 32 degrees celcius.

There are a couple specific questions I have but any help is appreciated.

1. is there a way to measure Video card tempurature? or even HD tempurature (at one point it was pretty crowded but its open now and still freezing)

2. Like my specs say I have an A7N8X Deluxe and recently update my bios, however, I was unsure of my pcb revision (as they have 2 different bioses for different revisions). Where can I find out my revision number

3. in the bios there is something called FSB Spread Spectrum. What the heck is that? (it wont let me change it from 0.5% but says the default is disabled)

Any other help is appreciated. Thank you.

I've had this problem for a long time now. My computer freezes for no appearant reason. I'll be doing anything from just surfing the net to listening to music to playing a game and it will freeze. Sometimes it will freeze after a long time of being on(2-5 hours) and sometimes it'll freeze during the scandisk on bootup, and other times it doesn't even turn on(i hit the power but the work light comes on and nothing happens). I've taken it in twice, had the harddrive swapped for a new one, reinstalled everything, but nothing has worked so far. After taking it in though it did work like normal for a long time but eventually the freezing came back. I've sort of been suspecting elecrical issues although I don't know how they could cause this.

I haven't been able to find a solution so hopefully someone can help me.

Thanks.

This is a new problem....worked fine for two years, and started freezing about six weeks ago. This the only site I have this problem with. At the suggestion of a friend on a discussion forum I frequent, I've checked to make sure I have all Windows updates installed. and I've done complete security and malware sweeps with two different systems, and done disc cleanup, defragmenting and used Advanced Registry Optimizer. Everything else is working satisfactorily except accessing this one site. Any suggestions?

I would like to start by saying ANY help at all with this problem would be life-saving.

So this is my problem a few days ago for no apparent reason my computer started freezing. This doesnt occur during any specific time but a few times I have experianced are

1. Right when windows finishes loading and my desktop appears
2. While surfing the internet
3. While watching a youtube video
4. While playing a flash game

It occurs during all these times but MUCH more frequently while playing World of Warcraft. I have 3.5 gigs of RAM and a nvidia 8400 not the best system but i have never had problems running the game before.

The weird part is this, sometimes I will be able to play World of Warcraft for hours on end with no lag at all. Other times I will have to restart my computer several times in a row (sometimes as many as 15-20 before I just give up!) Many times this occurs within 1-2 minutes of loading World of Warcraft (sometimes even at the login screen) but I have played for 1/2 to 2 hours before it occured many times before.

If it does freeze while playing WoW these are some things I noticed.

1. My player continues to move in the direction he was moving during the freeze. (If I was moving)

2. All the other players / effects around me continue uninterupted. (example players can still attack me while I am frozen)

3. My keyboard and Mouse have no function. Neither work at all.

4. Windows shuts down properly if I hit the power button.

So I just moved my computer from one room to another and for some reason it started freezing all the time. There was nothing new about the set up or peripherals, just a new room! I have a computer that is about 3 years old. It's an HP and it runs Windows XP.

It would often freeze very near the startup and would freeze all the time if I tried starting up itunes. so i ran all the anit-virus and spyware programs I could during safe mode. (I had malware bytes, advance systemcare, ad aware, and spybot running. I even cleaned up with ccleaner and cleaned the reg). It made things a little better but kept freezing. I went to BIOS and made sure everything was at their default settings(don't think it did anything really). I even tried a system restore but it kept failing. So I decided to reformat it and everything seemed fine at first.

BUT i noticed that it was slowing down a lot when trying to run certain setups and windows-commands such as: add/remove programs and trying to delete large files. And then it started freezing again. It even froze while i was trying to install the driver for my tablet which i use as my mouse so now i get a bunch of error messages on startup and the cursor is stuck at the upper left screen. It's my only mouse so i have to reformat...again. So it doesn't seem like it's a software issue. I don't know much about BIOS, memory or hardware stuff. Can somebody please help?!?!

Hi there, just recently my laptop has started acting strangely. Whenever I try to run My Computer, My documents and XP related folders from the desktop, Start menu etc explorer will freeze up and I can't access any programs unless they were running previously.

The only way around this is to Ctrl Alt Del shut down the Explorer process, run it again from File run new program, type in explorer.exe, it will then start again and be fine however if I attempt to run My Computer etc it will freeze once again and require shutting down via Task Manager. I have found that to open these folders I first need to run IE and once that is loaded, I can then click on My Computer, My Documents etc and they will load.

Whilest not being detrimental it is rather bothersome and was I hoping someone may be able to help resolve this problem.

If you've got serious problems with your computer (i.e ram failure, CPU failure etc) It will emit a pattern of beeps not unlike morse code on startup. The most common being no keyboard!
Can't remember what that one means, you'll have to look it up. Sorry I'm not much more help.

Hi there.

For a few weeks now my laptop has been freezing (as in all functions stop, it isn't shutting down by itself though) usually every two days although yesterday and the day before, it was two days in a row.

What's strange is that it only ever happens between 8 & 10pm. I've sometimes left my computer on all night (after that time) and it never has this problem or earlier during the day.

Also, it hasn't happened during that time period, when I've disconnected the internet (I disconnect the internet when I watch dvds otherwise it's likely to freeze).

I've done scans for viruses and spyware but it isn't finding anything other than tracking cookies.

Here's my system info.

This morning I noticed a siginificant drop in performance, just about everything would freeze, and I would even have to force restart (push the button on my tower). Things like taskmanager, and the ctrl alt delete menu would also freeze.

I got task manager working at one point, and it said 1% CPU usage, and 27% RAM, yet everything on my computer was freezing.

I'm currently scanning with superantispyware, and malwarebytes antimalware. I also have AVG Free Edition, SpywareBlaster, and Webroot Antivirus.

Here is my information:

Hi. Like it says in the title, my computer keeps freezing randomly. I've noticed it happens pretty often if I have too many tabs up in Chrome or am just trying to copy files over to my external hard drive. There's no BSOD; it just forces me to shut down manually.

I've done most of my important Windows Updates (it froze again when I tried to install the last one) and I've run the tool on Dell's website to see if my drivers were out of date and it doesn't look like it. I've also gone into Device Manager to update the "display adapters" and it tells me that's up to date too.

Any help would be much appreciated.

About a week or two ago, my computer would completely freeze with no movement of the mouse or anything and only a reboot will fix it. The computer only freezes when I edit files (Moving from folder to folder, drive to drive, ect. and when deleting them). I've Googled non stop but nothing comes up about computer freezing when editing files. I've scanned for anykind of malware, viruses, or even spyware, but nothing is detected. My computer is clean. Could this be a registry issue? What could it be and how can it be fixed? Im running Windows XP Professional with Service pack 3. There have been no big time updates done lately that might have caused this (though computer is up to date) and no programs have lately been installed. This is really frustrating and I still haven't found a solution. I don't know whats wrong. Help please

Use Belarc Advisor it builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware, including Microsoft Hotfixes, and displays the results in your Web browser. All of your PC profile information is kept private on your PC and is not sent to any web server.
NOTE: When providing this information please remove any licenses, listed in the results.

If you don't know how to edit the report, send me a pm and i'll give you my email address to send it to. I will then edit the report for you and include it in my next post.

Belarc Advisor report - Click on Belarc link, install it and run. When asked to update security definitions... say NO - the output will then appear in a web browser. If IE7/8 save Belarc in mht format (page, save as, single web archive - mht format); if Firefox - save as a web page in html format.

I tried to download the TSG info but I got a notification that my current settings do not allow for this type of file to be downloaded. I will post the info if someone can tell me how to fix that. I am using a Dell laptop with windows 7. My problem is that my computer was running perfectly until about a month ago when it started freezing on me. That problem increasingly worsened to the point where it was barely functioning.
I downloaded malwareabytes and ran the extensive scan. It quarantined two files and since then it's been better but still very slow. It works ok when I first begin using it but then it starts to freeze after about fifteen minutes. I tried rebooting a few times and also tried allow it to cool off.
I though about bringing the computer to a shop but then I remembered that I came here years ago (don't remember my screen name or log in) for a similar problem and whoever helped me did such a great job. I made a donation back then. I will make another if you can fix this issue. Thanks for so much

Hi,

I have a Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit system. In April I was having trouble with a BSOD and we installed a new motherboard and power supply. The mother board was "ASROCK Z77 Extreme". Formatted, reinstalled Windows. Now I am having problems again. When the system is left inactive for maybe 1/2 hr, it freezes up. I have to press the power button to turn it off. The event viewer reveals that a "kernel power 41" critical event has occurred. A screen shot is enclosed.

I was advised that the CD rom had stopped working and I should disconnect it. This did not solve the problem.

I experimented with the sleep settings, set the Hard Drive to turn off in "300 minutes" while sleep setting were set to 5 minutes. The system was not happy with this, and I ended up with a BSOD. I have camera shots of various fail screens if anyone is interested.

Seeing as we rebuilt practically the entire computer in April, I would prefer not to go thru this again 4 months later. If anyone has any ideas, I would be most grateful.
